I'm hunting deer and elk in washington

Socks. Smartwool socks are awesome. Spendy, but they dry fast and don't promote bacteria growth.

Those of us who live in the Western High country keep winter gear and food in our outfits the year around. You can find yourself facing winter conditions 12 Mos a year.
There are bears, wolves and lions to factor in as well. Learning to use a compass can be more of life saver than a plastic Walmart Poncho.

At my age and condition, I don't ever get far enough away from the truck to have to worry about it.

Yeah, but you have shelter with the truck, and can get a lot of good uses out of things in or on the truck.

All great suggestions here. Would like to add two things for list consideration; 1) Vaseline Jelly and 2) Frontier straw like; http://beprepared.com/water/water-filters-and-purification/aquamira-frontier-emergency-water-filter-system.html But the two things I am never without are baby wipes and a good half-serrated locking pocket knife.
